Two separate fires in Liberty County have displaced two families Dec. 9.

First an early Wednesday morning fire in East Liberty County displaced a woman when her recreation vehicle camper, which served as her home, caught on fire.

According to Liberty County Fire Services Chief Brian Darby, when the Liberty County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived at 1600 Dorchester Village Road, shortly after 5:30 a.m., the camper was fully engulfed in flames.

The woman, who has not been identified, was able to make it out of the home without injury.

It took firefighters from Liberty County Fire Services and stations 12 and 20 just a few minutes to bring the fire under control.

Darby said the woman had a cat that has not been located. The Red Cross has been notified to assist the woman.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

The Hinesville Fire department is reporting a fire at a Brantley Drive home has caused a family of eight to be displaced. That fire is still being worked on and investigated. 

 The Brantley Drive fire happened shortly after 11 a.m. in the 200 block the morning of Dec. 9

According to HFD Chief, Robert Kitching, the fire was a grease fire that happened while cooking. Hinesville firefighters were able to control the fire within 10 minutes of their arrival.

Kitchings said the single story home sustained damage in the kitchen and carport but caused no structural damage. The family of five adults, one teenager a two-year old and a five-month old were not injured in the fire. They also declined Red Cross assistance.
